Hear the meaning within the word-
Thud, thud, thud…”Why in the hell is my left knee hurting during this morning run? Two more miles and I’ll call it quits…” Fast forward 1-2-5-10-15 or however many years later and you know what? Watch this video if you dare! (The video is real and graphic – Just like life if you can’t handle it stop beating yourself up daily)
After you finish up watching the video take a gander at this excellent piece:
Mr. Able simply breaks it down for all of “You People” that stop by here daily.
Now to set up the above article and we know this is hard for some of you (like the 482 peeps that emailed yesterday). The writer ties together nicely in a polite sociable sort of way what we would spend a whole week banging you over the head…”Hey wait aren’t you guys doing that right now?!?”
We always like to present our fair readers with unique and challenging programs to consider. So on that note check this out:
Trail Run/Bike/Swim/Hike or whatever you honestly enjoy and do not say you enjoy running with sand bags, for about an hour. Followed by:
2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2 Perfect Pull Ups (each set of two is with a different and unique grip)
5 Thread the Needle Reverse Lunges (each leg) and 5 Lateral Lunges (each leg) between each set of pull ups duh!
We feel as though due the increase in Random Fitness readers over the past month to preface this workout: It is not a balls to the wall kill yourself for time event!
A majority if not all of you will not even break a sweat doing this, oh and no bands on the pull ups either! “Hmm I wonder why pull ups and lunges are important…Oh well I never ever use abductors when running a marathon anyways. And since when are abductors important to the overall health of my knees?”
If you do this above program properly and with the correct muscle activation…tomorrow is going to be hell!
Be safe peeps and as always feel free to experiment and let us know the results, ENJOY!!!
